16 Fantastic Fails No One Saw Coming

Diply 3 Jul 2018

The thing about fails (epic or otherwise) is that they usually seem like they're gonna go fine until they reveal themselves to be absolutely terrible ideas.

We'll also do things that we know will turn out badly, but those somehow go fine and give us a lot of false confidence. It almost seems...planned.

So I hope whatever cosmic force is behind the fails on this list is proud of themselves.

1. It looks like trying to turn real life into Grand Theft Auto wasn't such a great idea after all.

Oh well, at least their car didn't catch on fire for no reason like the ones in that game do when you flip them over.

2. This woman made a valiant effort to fight aging, but the truth always has a way of coming out.

And she would've gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for those meddling shadows. At least they won't eat her cake like Scooby Doo.

3. Unfortunately for this fearless rider, cement becomes a lot less totally tubular when it's wet.

I do love how they pretty much abandoned ship as soon as their gnarly trick backfired, though. What happened to "nobody gets left behind"?

4. I'm guessing this wasn't the "better experience" these students were expecting.

To give our poor, screaming-in-all-caps professor some solace, what kind of nerd opens a school email at one in the morning?

Unless the subject is "class cancelled," that's a no from me.

5. I don't care how obvious of a mistake that date is, you're never getting me to drink this.

Hell, even smelling it seems about as deadly as being married to the dude it was apparently intended for.

Call me picky.

6. Yup, nothing inspires confidence in your job security like seeing these two signs together.

At least if you really hate the work, you can rest easy knowing you won't have to do it for long. Getting paid might be...interesting, though.

7. Wow, that mirror seems a little big to suddenly forget all about for this picture.

But she's not taking the photo with her feet or something, so it doesn't seem like a weird humblebrag.

It's pretty sad when something even fails to be a fail.

8. Just so nobody thinks I'm being all smug, I didn't notice what was wrong when I saw this the first time.

Apparently, that means I'm qualified to be a newspaper editor. Although, I'm pretty sure I'd do stuff like this on purpose if I was one.

9. This one's kind of a puzzler. Is the road just like this, or did the driver feel like getting creative?

"Where we're going, we don't need roads." Sorry buddy, but I think you kind of proved yourself wrong here.

10. I'm not sure, but I get the feeling that this cat is pretty unhappy about it.

The water was bad enough, but it definitely doesn't remember signing up to be a fur snake. I guess it'll have a hard time scratching anybody over it, though.

11. Wow, finally an outfit designed for people who really love running into walls everywhere they go.

Instagram | @will_ent

I'd be worried about them getting hit by cars, but I'm not even confident they could make it outside with this crazy thing on.

12. I think the only failure here is whoever didn't hold the elevator for this poor guy.

This is pretty much what it would look like if the words "no, yeah, it's fine" were a person.

I guess I can't say my day's been this bad.

13. Yikes! Either Slimer from Ghostbusters just had a rough night or somebody had way too much confidence in their plastic plate.

And just because the world never leaves it to just one crappy thing, I'll bet the corn dog isn't even done.

14. Believe it or not, the fact that this grill is in the pool is the good part of this situation.

Apparently, the propane tank straight-up exploded and the choices were either to make it take a dip or let it set the house on fire.

15. Apparently, this woman paid money so someone could do this to her nails.

Facebook | Angela Blemmings

This isn't my area of expertise, and the shimmer is kinda cool, but they seem really...uncomfortable.

If someone gave me this, I'd think they're trying to get me to say where I buried my gold.

16. I don't care what this is supposed to do for the skin, it ain't worth losing your eyebrows over.

It's like the mask was designed by Satan in one of those moods where he's happy to give you what you want...but at a terrible price.
